A Mystery – An Opportunity – A Celebration!
While filming a documentary on the renovation of the century-old Wurts Street Bridge, the construction crew discovered a time capsule. No one knew it was there! The effects of moisture and 100 plus years had taken their toll… just rotted paper remained… the intended message a mystery, lost to time!
An idea emerged – Let’s invite the community to create a new Time Capsule – a message in a bottle to the future!
Over this last year, community organizations and individuals have created a treasure trove of artwork; ceramics, sculptures, photography and interview recordings, answering the question: “What is your message to the future?” All will be displayed.
At the event, there will also be interactive workshops for the whole family; a chance to record your personal message, write a message in a bottle, add to a community mural, make a worry doll, and lots more!
All this will be archived on the Documentary website before it goes into the Time Capsule.
Come celebrate the renovation of this beautiful, historic bridge and Join the Conversation!
